James Suckling: 2013 Vigna del Fiore “great wine” 93 points

Thrilled to share these recently published scores and tasting notes from one of the world’s top tasters of Tuscan wines, James Suckling.

A superb wine for the mellow and complex, concentrated palate, this has a very impressive dark-cherry and earthy core. Spiced leather and sweet and rich red- and dark-cherry fruits roll into the finish. Great wine.

Quite classically styled with leather and cedary aromas alongside dried cherries. The palate has bright acidity and poached red-cherry flavors hold long, smooth and even. You can drink now or hold for a more savory style and try around 2021.
